Alexander: Will from all parties to conclude Crooks deal


Graham Alexander has told BBC Radio Humberside that he is hopeful Scunthorpe can conclude a deal for Rangers’ midfielder Matt Crooks despite the Scottish giants not yet accepting the club’s bid.

The Iron boss suggests that whilst an agreement is yet to be struck, there is a will from all parties to get a deal over the line.

“He has got other clubs that are interested in him, and we’ve put what we think is our best deal for him to come to us, but we have to agree it with Rangers as well.

“I’m hopeful, I wouldn’t say I’m over-positive, but I know there is a will from all parties.

“I’ve had a few conversations with Crooksy to be fair, and he likes everything about us, but he’s got to weigh everything up”.

Scunthorpe chairman Peter Swann confirmed on Wednesday evening that the club would not get involved in a bidding war and that they had offered Rangers the best deal possible to secure the services of the 23 year old midfielder.

League One rivals Northampton Town are believed to have had a bid accepted for the former Accrington man.
